BoomKLAKers – Feel the Beat with Animated Monsters – Now available

Antwerpen, Belgium – Funky Bots today is thrilled to announce the release and immediate availability of BoomKLAKers 1.0, its first educational app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. BoomKLAKers features animated monsters that help show kids how to “feel the beat” by associating musical beats with movement. This is one of the basic principles for understanding music and dance. Babies are born with this skill innately. If they learn to feel the beat, they can dance forever. It is a skill that stays with them their entire lives.

BoomKLAKers is first app that shows kids how to See and Feel dance! Inspired by streetdance, martial arts and cirque acrobats, this app features monsters that do wall flips and pop to the beat of the music. The music is the most unique sound you will hear in a kids app, featuring 13 unique tracks created by French beatboxer/musician Teddy Guilbaud. The monsters all live in their own special worlds so the seven-eyed monster is in stereo land while the blue dinosaur guards the blue crane.
